MIU MIU WOMEN'S TALES 24 BY CARLA SIMON
Press pause on anything else, a new Miu Miu's Women's Tales has premiered at the Venice Film Festival. The latest, poignant film in the brand's series is titled Letter To My Mother For My Son, directed by Spanish film director Carla Simón. The film is a representation of Carla's family history, through Super 8 shots of grandparents, aunts, uncles and great-grandparents, following a young woman grow from the 1960s to present day. Both of Carla's parents died of AIDS when she was only six years old, and so, “with this film for Miu Miu Women’s Tales, I want to give my son what I didn’t have: a family history," she says. “Cinema has the power to repair what is missing. It’s very important in the creative process to question things, on set, with your team. I believe women directors are introducing this, and it’s very positive — not just for women, but for men, too”.
